Sylvia, I have some information that you might want.I have information of a Joseph W. Lyon, father was Joseph B. Lyon b1 may 1787, mother Elizabeth Cowan b. 21 Dec 1791 their other children were Samuel b. 1824, James A. b. 1825John T. 1827Joseph W. 1829 and Henry T. 1831.I think this Joseph W. might be the father of Joseph W. I do not have a wife but I do have a cemetery record that says "Listed with family of Joseph B.Lyon, next to Frances Eugenia Lyon.Joseph W. Lyon/Born July 28, A.D. 1854/ J.W.L Unmarked grave of adult is near the above." I have more information if you think this might be your Joseph W.Feel free to contact me directly through my e-mail and if your interested I will see if I can send you a ged com.My e-mail address is email@example.com and sometimes I feel that way. I am looking for information of Thomas L. Lyon or Lynes (my husbands greatgrandfather) who was born 1804 in South Carolina.
